I was saving a picture from an email, when I saw the glimpse of "rockin-kitty" and had instant inspiration for a layout that I've been wanting to do ever since receiving a very special gift from our oldest son & his darling wife -- a dual frame with pictures of him... young & old(er). The pics were a must for scrapping together (I had previously scanned in the younger pic(s) to use in their hybrid scrapbooks that I started a couple of years ago (25 yrs for each of 3 boys!!).
Since I recently joined JaniceBrasil's CT, I looked there 1st for a kit to work with -- another instant inspiration. . . and the layout began to take shape.
Knowing more PSE tricks was really helpful in so many ways. Be sure to check out Jessica Sprague's website for her classes -- and an awesome DigiScrapping subscription at Scrapper's Guide. I had lots of fun with Jessica's recent online class "Photo-Editing: Frames & Effects".
I just finished an online photo-editing class over at Jessica Sprague'sthat was really cool. Then, today I discovered a new kit by Bianca over at Project B Designs that gave me literally "instant inspiration" to attempt the photo collage... using masking, messing with hue/saturation to create sephia photos, using other technique (don't remember the name) to then unmask the sephia to let the color show thru.
It's the very 1st digi-scrapping where I've worked on the photos and got their layout finished before even getting the kit to dress it up with papers/elements and word art.
Hope you enjoy it as much as I had fun making them!!
